Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

Just make a quick check. 1. How many non-Sikh or non-Hindu religious establishments were targetted for terrorist attacks by members of Hindu & Sikh community? 2. How many non-Islamic religious establishments were targetted for terrorist attacks by members of Islamic faith? 3. How many non-Christian...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

I myself keep thinking about the Indians that have died in this attack only trying to further their own livelihood and to make a better life for themselves by emigrating. In some sense I can see myself in their shoes. How many cases have you noticed where whites have entered Temples or Gurudwaras a...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

When I first left India, my father, a government employee at a high position could barely afford to pay my airfare to the UK. Now, my cousins working for the government can take 2-3 trips every year to the US to visit their daughter. Of course airfares have become much cheaper vs. cost of living, b...

Re: The Great Indian Political Drama - 3 (Oct 2018 - )

The use of Air Force in foreign airspace is considered an act of war. Which is why using IAF in Pak was essentially an act of war, something that was not done even during Kargil conflict. Pakis thought Modi would go as far as he has, given that he cannot escalate beyond a particular point in an ele...

I agree with poster Gus mian that entry of Priyanka Gandhi at the last minute (3 months away from the election) smacks of some degree of desperation/lack of options. Until now, it was all Rajkumar Rahul for the past 2 years. And no, I've not seen any proof that Priyanka has any of the oratory and me...

I think sledging can be pretty funny, but the problem is it can escalate depending on the situation. And it is the Aussies who put themselves as the arbiters of what is acceptable sledging and what is not. Take for example, what Glenn McGrath said to Ramesh Sarwan: "What does Brian LAra's dick taste...

Correct me if I am wrong but this reminds me about the Taj Mahal. Namaz never used to be held there, as far as I know. And then about 10 years ago (or 5 years ago?) I read news reports about namaz being held there. A few years of this and recently I read a news article where the Waqf Board claimed o...

I dont like posting one-liners but the bottom right picture of Prime Minister Man Mohan Singh reverently saluting Rehan Vadra (?) is sickening to look at. There is not one ounce of dignity in that picture ....whether it is MMS, Robert and Priyanka.

I am confused. Surely you know that India will have a Prime Minister in 2019 or 2020 or 2021 whether or not there is an alternative.

And that Prime Minister will rule India (whether or not you can suggest an alternative).
